What a fantastic wedding! Manisha & Simon had chosen my favourite Ufton Court to host their wedding day, as the extremely flexible and professional team have a wealth of experience when it comes to hosting bespoke and unusual weddings. With two ceremonies in one day, the colourful Indian celebrations began with a wonderful surprise from the 'Stags'. unbeknown to the groom, they had organised a traditional Indian Baraat, whereby the bridegroom travels to the wedding venue on a mare, adorned in traditional Indian finery, accompanied by dhol drummers and his family members. At the meeting point of the two families, the groom was greeted with garlands, and the brides mother performed a traditional aarti ceremony to remove darkness and wave in light.
After the Indian ceremony, the fusion of the two cultures continued as the bride wore a stunning white wedding dress and the groom adorned tails for the civil ceremony.
It was an honour to photograph your amazing wedding, Manisha & Simon, and to meet your wonderful family and friends!
